Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2010 Chrysler PT Cruiser Owner Comments

problem #1

PT Cruiser 4-cyl

  • 25,000 miles


Edge of passenger side rear fender well paint is bubbling up with corrosion damage underneath paint. No damage to paint surface. Chipping paint away from bubble reveals rust. Careful examination of fender well shows similar smaller problems along edge of fender well. No other exterior corrosion problems on rest of car. Dealer service manager says this failure occurred because water is weeping in between paint and body sheet metal at metal edge inside of fender well. Damage repair not covered by factory corrosion warranty because metal is not perforated by rust. A three year old car should not have these types of failures.
